Observe the art of seduction. Watch, learn, and don’t eat my cookie.
~ from the TV series “Friends”
“In the United States and Canada, a cookie is a small, flat-baked treat, containing milk, flour, eggs, and sugar, etc. In most English-speaking countries outside North America, the most common word for this is biscuit; in many regions both terms are used, while in others the two words have different meanings …
Its name derives from the Dutch word koekje or (informal) koekie which means little cake, and arrived in the English language through the Dutch in North America.”
‘A biscuit is a hard baked sweet or savory product like a small, flat cake, which in North America may be called a “cookie” or “cracker“. The term biscuit also applies to sandwich-type biscuits, where a layer of ‘cream’ or icing is sandwiched between two biscuits. In the UK, “cookie” is usually only used in the phrase “chocolate chip cookie” or to refer to larger, softer American style cookies. Referring to the Sesame Street character the Cookie Monster, British author Chris Roberts quipped that he prefers the word cookies over biscuits “as a character called Biscuit Monster would never have worked”.’ (Wikiipedia)
CLICK COOKIES. Or BISCUITS. Or BISCOTTI. Or SHORTBREAD.
They can be sweet or savoury, single layer or sandwiched.
One day when he was eating a cookie he offered me a bite. Don’t underestimate that. The poor guy’s so frightened of germs, it could darn near have been a proposal.
~ Jean Harlow

FIVE GUARANTEED WAYS TO PISS THEM OFF
1. Make them wonder how your picture is related to the theme.
2. Stitch two or three pics together to make a diptych or triptych.
3. Put big borders, text or a dateline. Don’t. Please don’t.
4. Have them use their imagination to excavate your picture from beneath a giant copyright notice.
5. Add anything that distracts from the image.
(available for a month)
